Spokesman Bryan Corbin says 63 claimants have confirmed they’ll accept the offers, including the estates of seven people killed in the August 13 incident just prior to a Sugarland concert.
The other 58 will be compensated for their injuries, based on severity.
“We had one individual, one claimant, who was a minor, a teenager, who suffered permanent paralysis and his settlement offer was over $500,000,” Corbin said.
Corbin says the payouts account for all but about $2,000 of the $5 million in total compensation available under state law.
The state is still awaiting a response from the two remaining claimants.
Another lawsuit is pending against Sugarland, the concert promoter and others.
